The fight for the last great mountain in America's Appalachian heartland pits the mining giant that wants to explode it to extract the coal within, against the community fighting to preserve the mountain and build a wind farm on its ridges instead. With Bobby Kennedy Jr. enlisted as a passionate force for preserving Coal River Mountain and the economic power of the fossil fuel industry twisting democracy to its advantage THE LAST MOUNTAIN highlights a battle for the future of energy that affects us all.

In the valleys of Appalachia, a battle is being fought over a mountain. A battle that has taken innocent lives and threatens to take more. A battle to protect our health and environment from the destructive power of Big Coal. Mining and burning coal is at the epicenter of America’s struggle to balance its energy needs with environmental and health concerns. Nowhere is that concern greater than in Coal River Valley, West Virginia, where a small but passionate group of ordinary citizens are trying to stop corporations like Massey Energy from continuing the devastating practice of Mountain Top Removal. Mountain Top Removal–using dynamite to blast off a mountain’s surface and destroy an entire ecosystem–pollutes the air and water, is implicit in their neighbors’ deaths, eliminates traditional mining jobs and spreads lethal pollution to other states. Big Coal commits Mountain Top Removal daily, amassing huge profits that allow their Washington lobbyists to wield influence in both political parties, rewrite environmental laws and avoid violations. The desire to stop Mountain Top Removal comes from the belief that Americans share responsibility for protecting their air and water; it's what drives the group and their supporters from outside of Appalachia, like Robert Kennedy, Jr., to keep fighting. Honoring ordinary Americans who have organized themselves to fight for what they believe in, THE LAST MOUNTAIN shines a light on our energy needs and the fight for a better future that affects us all.
